Tanner 17: Lydia Stewart Tanner

b. 18 November 1773 Bolton, Warren, New York
d. 31 May 1825 Bolton, Warren, New York
Husband: John Tanner
Father: William Stewart; Mother: Amy Hulton or Hutton

Lydia Stewart, daughter of William and Amy (Hutton) Stewart was born 18 November 1773 and married to John Tanner 1801. She was the mother of twelve children. She died at Bolton, New York, 31 May 1825.

I just read a biography of Nathan Tanner (John and Lydia's son and our ancestor Sidney's brother) in History of Utah which says that he was named after a relative who was a childless Baptist preacher. This relative requested that John and Lydia name their next child after him and he prophesied many events that later happened in Nathan's life. The picture of Lake George is by John F. Kensett and is in the public domain.Wikipedia.
